Posts marked 'innovative' (*) are unlikely to attract banding, however they are interesting posts with clinic work etc. included
ITP – Integrated training posts are rotations with a split working week with time spent in General Practice and a specialty. You will have a clinical supervisor in each of the two elements of the job. In an ITP, each working week will be made up of two days in General Practice, two days in the specialty and one day of educational activity. The working week will mirror that of General Practice with limits on the amount of antisocial work as per the 2016 trainee GP contract.
Community Post – Community-focused specialty post where the majority of the working week is spent working with outpatients (i.e. patients who attend from, and return to home) or in a community setting separate from an acute trust. The working week may include a proportion of on call work.
If you have any particular disability arrangements or reasonable adjustments which must be considered, please ensure this is discussed with the patch team(s) well in advance when browsing the available rotations. Please contact GPRecruitment.SW@hee.nhs.uk who will put you in contact with the relevant team to discuss your needs in relation to the rotations available in this recruitment round.
If you have any questions about the rotations please contact GPRecruitment.SW@hee.nhs.uk. Please do not contact the patch teams directly as they do not receive a final list of new starters until all rotations have been allocated which will be the end of April 2023.
During the general practice component of your training you will be working in the community. As well as seeing patients in the surgery you will also visit patients in their own homes, in community hospitals and in nursing homes. You are also likely to attend meetings and teaching sessions in places different from your own surgery. Similarly hospital rotations may involve work at different sites within the trust. It is essential that you are able to get to these places. If you do not have a driving licence, please ensure that you have appropriate alternative transport arrangements in place.
You will be expected to be able to attend emergencies and provide domiciliary care which may include out of hours visits if you are based in a GP training practice or in some secondary care posts at any time during your training programme. If you are not a car driver, you are expected to provide a car and driver at your own expense in order to meet this requirement. Relying on public transport, bicycles and taxis is not normally acceptable.
Please be reminded that when you submitted your application you agreed to the following -
I agree that I am able to provide emergency and domiciliary care at any time during my training programme. If, for any reason, my licence ceases to be valid or I no longer have access to a vehicle, I agree to provide a vehicle or vehicle and driver at my own expense so that I may continue to fulfill this requirement unless, if I am unable to drive for medical reasons, my employer is able to make other reasonable adjustments to the job or to this requirement.
